Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta), India, on September 5, 1997. On September 13, 1997, her body was borne through the streets of Calcutta on a gun carriage that had once carried the body of India’s beloved Ghandi. Over 15,000 people at- tended a full state funeral granted by the Govern- ment of India, with digni- taries from more than 23 countries on hand. A large section of the seats in the stadium were reserved for the ‘poorest of the poor,’ people that Mother Teresa served during her life- time. They affectionately referred to her simply, as “Mother.” After the state service she was buried beneath a plain stone at the Mother House in Cal- cutta.
During her lifetime and
after her passing, Mother Teresa was frequently listed by “Gallop’s List of Most Admired People” to be the single most widely admired person. In 1999, she was ranked as the “most admired person of the 20th century. Her life- long devotion to the care of the poor, the sick and the dying was considered to be the highest example of service to humanity the world over.

On October 19, 2003,
more than 250,000 peo- ple traveled from all over the world to Saint Peter’s Square in Rome to at- tend a Mass in honor of Mother Teresa where she was formally beatified by John Paul II, with the title “Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.” At the time of her death, the Mission- aries of Charity had well over 4,000 sisters, an as- sociated brotherhood of

300 members, and over 100,000 lay volunteers who oversaw 610 missions in 123 countries. They included hospices and resident homes for people who were contracted with the HIV/AIDS virus, lep- rosy and tuberculosis. It should be noted that shortly after her arrival back at the South Bronx Missionaries of Charity home on June 22, 1985, I received a telephone call from her, asking if we would give her permission to use the monetary offer- ings she received that day at the stadium, for use in building a home for AIDS patients in New York. Our response was that she use the money wherever she felt the greatest need. The world may never see
another person like her again in time and circum- stances. Race, color, or creed were never an issue in serving the “Poorest of the Poor.” Rest in peace Blessed
Teresa of Calcutta. Most assuredly there has to be a special place in Heaven for you.
